Get Involved

Everyone can participate in the Xubuntu community on many levels, from simply giving advice to fellow Xubuntu users to becoming a maintainer of core packages. Any contribution, even the smallest one, is valued. We welcome everybody to improve Xubuntu and spread Free Software.

Three tips to start contributing to Xubuntu

  1. Attend the Xubuntu community meetings
  2. Participate in discussions on our developer IRC channel #xubuntu-devel or the Xubuntu-devel mailing list
  3. Work within one of our teams on a project or two

Whether you contribute or not, you are free to join us at #xubuntu (along with the other IRC channels!) as well as join the Xubuntu users group at Launchpad.

Xubuntu development subteams

Once you get started, you’ll also want to create an account at Launchpad and introduce yourself as well as your talents in the Xubuntu-devel mailing list. If you want to contribute to a specific part of the project, it’s a good idea to contact the appropriate team leader too – you can find the complete list of current leaders – and leadership positions open – at the Xubuntu wiki.

It’s also encouraged to create your own wiki page on the Ubuntu wiki to introduce yourself to the broader Ubuntu community as well as keep track of your contributions within the community.
